Fall is just around the corner, and if you're looking for an easy, quick and affordable way to bring some beautiful autumn colors into your home, then this DIY fall topiary is just what you need! Using mostly Dollar Store materials, this topiary costs only a few dollars to make, but it looks like something that would sell for much more!Let's start gathering the supplies and make this lovely topiary!To make this fall flower topiary I used:Fall flowers – I got mine from Dollar Store as their fall flowers are affordable and look great in a topiary like this.An 8 inch foam ball – the size is up to your desire, as anything from 6 inch to 10 inch will work. I made mine with an 8 inch ball, as that seemed like the best size for me.A flower pot or an urn – I had a galvanized metal flower pot on hand, so I used that. If you like the galvanized look, Amazon has some nice ones.Some hot glue.Once I gathered all the materials, I started pulling all the different colors of flowers and the suitable greenery out of the picks.
This was a very nice shade till the cat knocked over the lamp and busted the bracket. So I love the shape and needed a basket.
We recently installed a couple of Ring Outdoor Security Cameras at Steph's house as part of our participation in The Home Depot's smart home campaign.These cameras are battery operated, meaning we could install them away from a power source. This gave us a lot more flexibility in their placement.We decided to put them where they could "see" Steph's house rather than "see" out away from it.Take a look at what we did, and how we gave them a bit of camouflage in the form of a birdhouse "slipcover."

We've been posting lots of progress photos on Instagram (@beginninginthemiddle), including some of the master bedroom at our historic townhome. When we mentioned that we made the bed skirt ourselves out of painter's drop cloths, and no sewing was involved, many of you asked for a tutorial. Here goes!
I wanted to add patterned curtains to my daughter's room, but didn't want to overwhelm the room with busyness since she already has a gold polka dot feature wall. I chose to use drop cloth curtains with a band of printed fabric at the top to add some interest, but still stay relatively neutral. These curtains were so fun and easy to make, especially since I didn't have to use the sewing machine!
One of the Facebook pages I follow always posts pictures of Cardinals eating from feeders made from a cup, saucer/small plates & chain. I decided I wanted to make my own. I went to Goodwill & found a couple cups, but got bread plates instead of saucers, as they gave more space for the bird seed. I made my feeder, but while I was in the process of it, I decided that I liked the way it would look on a wall, then thought I'd put one of my battery-powered tea lightset in it. I loved it. I have 2 different patterned ones, and went back to get more plates & cups today.
I have a very small living room which means I don't have any room for end tables, so no room for table lamps and no room for floor lamps. So to add more lighting, I came up with this design for wall sconces that incorporates a shelf that can double as small end tables. I made them using standard materials from the hardware store and only a few hand tools like a drill and a hand saw!
The right pillow form can make all the difference with your decor. But sometimes - we don't need to look any further than our linen closets and bedrooms for fresh pillow inserts. I made these two gorgeous, fluffy pillow inserts out of one bed pillow that was on it's way to be donated. I just love finding new ways to use stuff around the house!
I have been looking to buy a full size mirror for my room for such a long time. However, every time I find the one that I am exited about, the price and I don't seem to agree with each other So as a Do It Yourself person I decided to make one for myself with a fraction of the store price. Here is how I did it... No power tools necessary, if you can glue then you CAN do this DIY! see it for yourself...Materials You will need
